Babek Hejazialhosseini from ETH presented this talk at the Stanford HPC Conference. “This talk outlines the challenges that hinder the effective solution of complex flows on contemporary supercomputers. It demonstrates several generalizable techniques towards achieving unprecedented performance on both IBM Blue Gene/Q and Cray supercomputers. Simulation of cloud cavitation collapse, a challenging flow problem with a broad range of applications, is presented.”
The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) and London-based Maxeler Technologies are collaborating in a project funded by the UK Department of Business Innovation and Skills to install the next generation of supercomputing technology in a new facility at the Daresbury Laboratory focusing on energy efficient supercomputing to enable UK industry to have the edge in using a technology designed for the move towards Exascale computing.
“The INCITE and PRACE programs give access to increasing resources allowing these technologies to be applied to industrial scale systems. From past and ongoing research examples performed at CERFACS, this presentation highlights the scientific breakthroughs allowed by HPC on exascale machines for reacting flows for gas turbines and explosions in buildings.”
The European PRACE initiative has allocated 44 awards totaling millions of hours of supercomputing time in their 8th Regular Call for Proposals.
Over at the XSEDE blog, Scott Gibson writes that the organization is collaborating with industrial partners to both advance open science and improve companies’ bottom lines. The “Industry Challenge” is a new XSEDE program designed to bring the scientific and industrial communities together in multidisciplinary collaborative teams and connect them with world-class advanced digital services.

Frank Ham from Cascade Technologies presented this talk at the 2014 HPCAC Stanford HPC & Exascale Conference. “On an annual basis, the US government awards 10′s of billions of HPC core-hours to projects seeking to answer questions in science and engineering through large-scale simulations. In this talk, I will share several examples of insights into flow physics phenomena achieved through these programs.”
